Berkeley, CA: Gingko Press, 2013. First edition. Lge. 4to. Red cloth, embossed in silver. Foreword by Shepard Fairey.

SIGNED by John Van Hamersveld on the verso of the front free endpaper.

A comprehensive retrospective of Van Hamersveld's work as a prolific producer of graphic images rooted in the West Coast counterculture, from his classic poster design for the surf film 'The Endless Summer' in 1963 (which launched his career), through his role as art director at Capitol Records (for whom he designed over 300 album covers, including 'Magical Mystery Tour', 'Crown of Creation', and 'Exile on Main Street'), the Pinnacle posters for the Shrine Exposition Hall in LA (notably Jimi Hendrix), illustrations for Rolling Stone and Wet Magazine for Gourmet Bathing, branding and logo work for Tower Records and JIMMY'Z t-shirts, corporate design consultancy, experiments with new media, and far more, peppered with anecdotes about the many artists, friends, musicians and executives he encountered along the way.
